Dear All,

I would like to draw your attention to a great opportunity for young
scientists in the field of computational neuroscience to establish an
independent research group in Germany.  Please forward to appropriate
candidates.  Unfortunately, (strict) deadline is already May 31.

Best regards, Laurenz Wiskott.


Bernstein Award 2007

    Young Scientists Research Award in Computational Neuroscience. 

The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has
established the "National Network for Computational Neuroscience" with four
high-performing "Bernstein Centers for Computational Neuroscience" as the
major structural elements.

The "Bernstein Award" is equipped with up to 1.250 Mio Euro in the form of
a grant over a period of five years. It will be awarded to a highly
qualified young researcher, considering the candidates' verifiable research
profile in the field of computational neuroscience and the scientific
concept for a future young research group. Young researchers can apply for
their own position and group. The group funded by the "Bernstein Award"
will become an integral part of the National Network for Computational
Neuroscience. This is the second "Bernstein-Award" announcement.

The grant is provided for a scientific project of a young research group
headed by a postdoc regardless of nationality. The project will be
conducted at a German university or research institution - within or
outside the Bernstein Centers. It is a prerequisite for funding that the
university or research institution concerned employs the young researcher
during the funding period and supports him/her with the basic equipment in
terms of laboratory space and other infrastructure. A statement made to
that effect by the receiving institution must be included with the project
outline to be submitted.

Deadline for applications is May 31st, 2007.
